Leading Through Disruption

Without question, COVID-19 and the response efforts surrounding it have temporarily altered the way we lead and serve our organizations, our teams and our communities. 

In fulfillment of the Leadership Center’s mission to explore innovative leadership knowledge and practices to better those we serve, we endeavor to provide the latest thinking on issues and trends that impact all of us. 

In that spirit, this year’s theme “Leading Through Disruption” will provide a springboard for timely discussions to help us navigate uncharted territory.

Join us as we continue our 2021 Leadership Series: Leading Through Disruption. Guest speaker Brett Kaufman, CEO of Kaufman Development, as he shares his personal journey at the intersection of personal transformation and leadership. 

Brett is a builder of conscious communities, believing that success comes easiest when working from one’s highest and best self. This has motivated his work to be centered around mental health, wellbeing, and creative expression. Brett’s vision of creating spaces that provide healthy, sustainable, and holistically supportive environments for people to work and live led to the founding of Kaufman Development in 2011 and has changed the real estate development landscape in one of the country’s fastest growing cities. This passion has also motivated Brett to become a coach and mentor to over 100 entrepreneurs, using a framework that taps into a person’s life journey and provides tools for meditation, therapy, and personal development.
